EYES WIDE OPEN

EYES WIDE OPEN – By James Ohiomoba

It happened so fast, suddenly I felt like I had immediately before my very eyes lost it all.

A picture flashed my mind as it seemed I was the joke, the humptydumpty that had a great fall.

At crossed roads, unsettled and confused I had played deaf to instructions, now who do I call?

An eagle born to soar that flies with vultures if unrepentant will definitely crawl.

As in my case, I had built a shield of stubbornness but now desired an experience that would break such wall.

Where do I begin, what becomes of me, will I be replaced with a David and rejected like king Saul?

My esteem, pride have been dropped, I’ve been reduced to nothing, how can I ever stand tall.

What would I be remembered for, what’s my legacy, what did I live for,

Was I really insensitive to others and only cared about how to ball?

Indeed a reflection of the future, I’m faced with a mirror of choice, to refuse to sink deep in shallow thoughts and deeds that births excruciating toil.
